The Seine river is the vein of Paris. Core of the city, its life organizes around it. If you follow its path you will discover some beautiful landmarks of the capital. Many are directly on the Seine banks such as the iconic Eiffel Tower, the grandiose Palace of Tokyo, the Grand Palais, the Orsay or Louvre museums, Notre Dame Cathedral…

However, some are above the flowing water of the Seine such as the replica of Statue of Liberty, given by France to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence.

Even if you cannot lock a padlock on Pont des Arts (Arts bridge), this bridge remains a must see in Paris.

The famous Ile de la cité which harbors the magnificent Notre Dame de Paris Cathedral as well as the Sainte Chapelle. Further down, stands Ile Saint Louis, a lovely island with narrow crowded street filled with art galleries and great shops. Renowned for its delicious ice cream from Berthillon, you can enjoy a cone while exploring this lovely island on the Seine River.

During the summer, Paris plage (beach) is installed along the Seine River, appreciated by the Parisians for the activities organized or simply to relax and take a break from the bustling city. At night, you can danse in the guinguettes. 

One optimal way to see Paris landmarks in a short amount of time if you don't mind the crowds is to take the Bateau Mouche along the Seine River, and be carried along the most beautiful sites of Paris. Only bridges could keep you busy for an entire day.

Emilie is amazing. Going to Normandy has always been a dream of my husbands and luckily for us we found Emilie to plan our trip. Our hotel in Paris for the start of our trip was located perfectly.
